Well, does AppleShare IP provide NAT services? How about WebStar? Mac OS X too complicated?

Thanks!

NAT is a function of a router. Or a software router, say, IP Net Router.... or a MaCSense DSL router or a CISCO 675 or.... I could go on? must I?

appleshare ip doesnt have NAT but it does have a firewall capability via ip filtering

should be useful if you need a firewall

Please avoid Cisco at all costs... they are to network devices what Microsoft is to operating systems, only a major plague...
Instead try the wonderfull R9100 from Netopia. If only they could make Wan router and level 3 switches...

Well, here are my choices, on the cheap:

1) IPNetRouter $89 --setup all kinds of cool stuff in conjunction with AppleShare IP. some quirks, but tested by them to work well with ASIP and WebStar. Question: which one is a better file/web server?

2) Cisco 675 $0 --already have one; so how do you set it up for NAT? difficult to setup? must use serial port (i.e., find a PC laptop or older Mac) to setup?

thanks!

--also; thoughts on 2 ethernet adapters? required?

Have you tried reading the manuals for the Cisco router? or checked their website for documentation. These forums are more typically used for troubleshooting and buying advice. Not as a free network consulting service. If you're really lost (particularly if this is for a business), you may want to hire a professional network consultant to get you set up.

I didn't know that. Sorry if I offended you (seems like I did.) No, I haven't read the manuals --are you actually helping me by saying I can do this by reading the manuals, or are you just trying to flame me?

I have questions, I had no idea I wasn't asking for advice. Like for instance, should I get another Ethernet adapter? Or whether or not others (not you, obviously) have advice on setting up NAT on the Cisco router. Again, my apologies this isn't valid to you.

Just asking, not really trying to start a flame war. And, actually it's not really for a business. As jz said above:
